帆船之都奧克蘭

截止時間:

  靜靜地偎依在兩個大港口之間的奧克蘭是新西蘭的第一大城市,它在閃閃發光的海水襯托下,素有"帆船之都"的美譽。

  奧克蘭市民酷愛揚帆出海,醉心于"三B"活動,即:去海灘、劃船和燒烤野餐。他們抓住一切機會,成群結隊地離家奔向最近的海灘或港口,隨身帶著用久了的野炊用具和裝滿冰凍啤酒的聚丙烯"冷箱",從而使這種場景顯得十分壯觀。每年一月底在懷特瑪塔港舉行的帆船競賽,千帆并舉,更是奧克蘭城的一大盛景。

  誰能怪罪奧克蘭人呢?是上蒼賜予了他們兩個美麗的港口,數十個可以供人們游泳的海灘,遍布幽靜小島的海岸,較高的生活水準以及適合戶外運動的夏季氣候。

  皇后大街

  皇后大街是奧克蘭傳統的主要街道或"黃金地段",是新西蘭的最佳商業區,它匯集了市內所有購物商店及大型百貨公司。這里的商品,琳瑯滿目,令人目不暇接。禮品商店和羊毛制品店出售手工羊毛袍、毛利族人雕刻品、翡翠、飾品、貝殼首飾、由美洲負鼠皮制成的皮衣以及羊毛汽車座套。

  伊麗莎白女王廣場

  伊麗莎白女王廣場位于皇后大街的盡頭,廣場上沒有中心郵局、市區綜合大樓和新西蘭航空公司。該廣場是上班族最喜愛的就餐場地,在這里,也常常可以見到街頭演說者和抗議游行者。他們可以在此盡情傾訴大至因核艦艇來訪小到因幼兒園經費嚴重不足所引起的悲傷和怨恨。多彩的水果推車出售基偉果、費約果、番茄、拍平縷瓜、枯麻拉果和其它新鮮的新西蘭農產品。丹麥冰淇淋冷飲室更使喜愛甜食的人們垂涎欲滴。

  老海關大廈

  老海關大廈坐落于市區綜合大樓對面,正好在海關和阿爾伯特街的拐角處,這個大廈80多年來一直是奧克蘭的金融中心。

  老海關大廈是按照法國文藝復興時期的建筑風格設計的,落成于1889年,它也是目前在中心商業區遺留下來的具有維多利亞風格的最后一批紀念物之一。大廈每周七天均向游客開放,設有電影院、工藝禮品商店、飯店、客棧、咖啡廳,還有對外出售書籍、木制品以及羊毛制品的商店。

  維多利亞派克市場

  自老海關大廈向西步行10分鐘就可以看到維多利亞派克市場,派克市場就建在奧克蘭市原來的垃圾處理場的舊址處。

  市場建成于1905年,由當年的亞瑟。梅瑟市長為其剪彩。市長坐在供船上用的高空操作坐板上,被送到40米高的煙囪頂部,為這座黃色的磚樓砌上了最后一塊磚。現在,這座歷史上著名的建筑物每周七天均對外營業,內設有果品店、菜店、水產品店和工藝品店以及供小販叫賣用的多彩手推車和食品攤位。

  AUCKLAND——"THE CITY OF SAILS"

  Nestled between the sparkling waters of two large harbours is Auckland, the largest city of New Zealand. Auckland is affectionately known as" the City of Sails".

  Most of the residents of Auckland love sailing very much, and they are preoccupied by three B's: beaches, boats and barbecues. They take every available opportunity to desert their homes in droves to head for the nearest beach or boat harbour, armed with battered barbecue sets and polystyrene "chilly bins" packed full with ice-cold beer. It is really a magnificent scene. And towards the end of January, an annual sailing competition is held, in which up to l, 000 sailing boats compete on the Waitemate Harbour. That is the sporting highlight of the year of Auckland.

  But who can blame Aucklanders? They happened to be blessed with two beautiful harbours, scores of swimming beaches in which people can swim, a coast line dotted with secluded offshore islands, sophisticated living standards and a summer climate that insist on outdoor life.

  (1) QUEEN STREET

  Queen Street is Auckland's traditional main street or "Golden Mile", offering the best range of shopping. All the shops and big department stores of the city are gathered in this street. It is the best commercial center of New Zealand. Souvenir and sheepskin shops sell hand-made woolen garments, Maori carvings, greenstone (jade) ornaments, shell jewelry, opossum fur coats and wooly car-seat covers.

  (2) QUEEN ELIZABETH SQUARE

  The bottom of Queen Street is occupied by Queen Elizabeth Square which contains the Central Post Office, Downtown Complex and Air Zealand. The Square is a favorite haunt of lunchtime office workers, soapbox orators and protest marchers bewailing grievance ranging from visits by nuclear ships to stingy kindergarten funding. A gaily colored fruit for offers kiwi fruit, feijoas, tamarillos, pepino, kumara and other fresh New Zealand products while a Danish icecream parlour tempts the sweeter tooth.

  (3)THE OLD CUSTOMHOUSE

  Sitting majestically opposite to the Downtown Complex on the corner of Customs and Albert streets is the Old Customhouse which is the financial heart of Auckland for more than 80 years.

  Designed in French Renaissance style, the building was completed in 1889 and is one of the last remaining examples of Monumental Victorian architecture to be found in the central business district. Open seven days a week, the Old Customhouse houses a cinema, arts and crafts emporium, gift shop, restaurants, tavern, coffee bar and shop selling, wood and woolen products.

  (4) VICTORIAPARK MARKETS

  Ten minutes' walk to the west of the Old Customhouse are the Victoria Pat Markets. The markets are located on the disused site of the city's former rubbish destructor.

  Completed in l905, the yellow brick buildings were opened by Mayor Aithur Myers, who was hauled to the top of the 40-metre chimney in a ship's bo' sun chair to lay the final brick. The historic site now offers seven-day buying at fruit, vegetable, fish and craft shops or hawkers barrows and food stalls.
